    In recognition of the importance of food secure and resilient cities, many local governments across the world are prioritizing food systems in their policies and plans. Their actions usually aim at addressing broader sets of challenges such as malnutrition, environmental challenges and resilience to shocks and extreme events. However, despite the progress, the role of local and regional governments in promoting urban food systems transformation has not been sufficiently recognized at national and global levels. In most cases, particularly in developing countries, local and sub-national governments lack financial and technical capacity to advance sustainable transformation of agrifood systems at scale. To support municipalities in putting cities in the driving seat for sustainable agrifood systems, there is a growing number of urban food systems networks and initiatives at global, regional and national levels.
